HOLIDAY 2013


Greetings! SEASONʼS

As the year draws to a close, we are reminded by Matte Stephen’s illustration the beauty and fun we all need to experience after a long year of hard work. This is usually difficult to do as an independent artist/designer trying to make ends meet. This time of year is the most important to them but it’s also an exhausting time from not only making things, but also from packaging, posting and delivering their own goods. So we want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting our vendors throughout the years, and during this time of year as you consider your holiday purchases. As we head into our 9th year of supporting handmade, and as the online landscape changes, we appreciate your readership and loyalty. Wishing you and yours a lovely holiday season! Jan + Earl Founders, Poppytalk.com

spicy squash + BLACK BEAN SOUP

A fall favorite, this soup is super easy and perfect for a crisp autumn night. Recipe by Jeannette Ordas of Everybody Likes Sandwiches 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 small onion, minced 1 stalk of celery, minced 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 birds eye chills, sliced 1 tablespoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder 1 cup chopped tomatoes (or use canned diced tomatoes)

1 can black beans, drained 3 cups chicken stock 1/2 cup diced spicy Hungarian sausage (or use your favourite sausage) 2 cups mashed squash 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar salt + pepper toasted pumpkin seeds, optional


blender. Otherwise, after the mashing, pour in the stock and let simmer for 15 minutes.

Feel free to substitute canned, unsweetened pumpkin for the squash. It's a whole lot easier and a heck of a lot faster too. In a large heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high heat and add in the onion, garlic and chilies, sautĂŠ until soft. Stir in cumin and chipotle powder, along with the tomatoes and black beans. Use a potato masher and give everything a good mashing.

Add in the sausage and squash and cook down for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. You may want to add in more stock or water to get the consistency you prefer. Add in the vinegar and taste and adjust seasoning, if needed. Serve in bowls and garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds.

If you like a smoother soup, add in half the stock and blend with an immersion
